Agriculture is of paramount importance of Sub- Sahara African (SSA) countries. Owing to that, governments and donors invest in the agricultural sector in order to meet the sustainable development goals. However, gaps are observed between official development assistance (ODA) disbursements and commitments. Therefore, this paper investigates the effect of ODA and its volatility on agricultural productivity growth in SSA over the period 2002-2015, using a random effect model. The findings reveal a negative and significant effect of ODA volatility on agricultural productivity growth. The findings suggest that SSA countries partners may continue helping them to boost the agricultural productivity growth through ODA and reduce the gap between ODA disbursements and ODA commitments, to make ODA more predictable.
